How would a native Spanish speaker say:

Merche asks Raul and i to rent a car. We get a yellow one, with a full tank. Merche goes to a tourist reservation, so we drive there to find her. When we finally find her, she's at a telephone booth. But suddenly Merche is taken into a black car. Raul attemps to saving her but fails.  

 

Thanks!

The answer to your question seems to be entirely in present tense, so I will follow that same format. if using Latin American Spanish, the translation would be:

Merche nos pide rentar un automóbil a Raúl y a mí. Obtenemos uno en amarillo (also accepted: "de color amarillo") con el tanque de gasolina repleto. Merche va a una reservación turística, así que manejamos hasta allá para encontrarla. Cuando la encontramos finalmente, estaba dentro de una cabina de teléfono. Pero de repente Meche es atrapada dentro de un automóbil negro. Raúl intenta rescatarla, pero falla. (You can also say, "Raul intenta rescatarla, pero falla en su intento").
